E.A. Harrold Elementary in Millington closed Wednesday because of air conditioning issues

Schools battle extreme heat as students return

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (WMC) - School is canceled Wednesday for students at E.A. Harrold Elementary School in Millington.

Air conditioning problems that displaced E.A. Harrold students Tuesday continue, so district leaders decided to close the school Wednesday.

All other schools in Millington remain open.

On Tuesday, about 300 students were moved to a nearby building because of the lack of air conditioning.

Bo Griffin, director of schools, says they’ve never had an issue like this before.

“We moved our K throguh 5, which is at E.A. Harrold to the new Performing Arts Center of Millington so that they could have air conditioning because our No. 1 concern is the safety of our students," said Griffin.
